About Kate Adams

Who am I?

I'm an artist who works in scratchboard to create fantasy illustrations. I have worked on books, games, and private commissions.

How do I make my illustrations?

All of my illustrations are made by hand in scratchboard using an x-acto knife. Each board has a thin layer of dry white clay that's then been covered in black ink. I use the knife to scrape away the ink, revealing the white underneath. Future posts on here will go into even more detail about my process.

What will I be sharing on Patreon?

I'll be using Patreon to share behind-the-scenes videos and updates about my passion project titled Nocturne. This is a series of pieces that all feature characters and scenes from a novel that I'm developing. The story evolves with each new piece in the series, and I'm very excited to share that process with my patrons. This is the only place where I will be sharing extended timelapse videos as extra insight into my process. Anyone who's interested can follow along and be truly involved in the development of my story as it evolves as a visual series.

Here is the collection so far:

Why Patreon?

Scratchboard is an extremely meticulous medium, and it can be difficult to justify spending all that time on personal pieces rather than on paid commissions. It would be so helpful and encouraging to build up a group of patrons who are invested in the progress of Nocturne. You can contribute however much you'd like for access to everything that I post, so this will essentially be a virtual tip jar for people who really want to follow the progress of this series up close.

This is a work in progress, but I am planning to share new process updates and timelapse videos as often as I can. Please take a look, and join me if you'd like.

Thank you for your support!
